Varigraph - is that a machine that allowed one to break the typographic rule #1 and stretch letterforms?

A super varigraph is a jumbo version of the regular-size varigraph.

A Varigraph is a device, named after a company by the same name, which allows letterforms to be traced in an altered style or special effect (such as backslanted, obliqued, italic, expanded, vertically stretched, etc.). The device is placed on a blank page, and a pen, connected to a tracing tool through mechanical linkages, marks the altered letterform outlines on the paper.
